Vietnamese youth abroad appreciate the opportunity to take part in the 2015 Vietnam Summer Camp and will promote their homeland overseas, shared a Vietnamese Belarusian during the camp’s official launch at the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hanoi on July 16.

Delivering a speech to more than 160 young Vietnamese expatriates living in 21 countries worldwide at the opening ceremony, Deputy Foreign Minister Vu Hong Nam stated the Party and Government consider overseas Vietnamese an integral part of the nation, saying the country has implemented a range of policies to support the community, especially the younger generation.

He wished the Vietnamese youth abroad would learn about the late President Ho Chi Minh to enhance their patriotic deeds and solidarity.

Nguyen Long Hai, Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, expressed his hope that the youth would further their community-building roles and maintain traditional values overseas despite the geographic distance.

Held annually by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, this year’s Vietnam Summer Camp themed “Proud of Vietnam” runs from July 13-31 and will take participants to major landmarks from the north to the south of the nation.
